The company men and their wives, mostly from the old Hope Natural Gas era, enjoyed their annual dinner at the Calhoun County Park barn.

The old Hope Natural Gas Company, which rolled over into CNG and later Dominion Gas, was a major employer in Calhoun County. Once you got a job for the Hope, you likely stuck around awhile. Some worked for well over 40 years, a retention unheard of in this new century, where most people change jobs every five years.
